To kick off season two, Jake Goldman joins Jen to tackle history and mystery in the novel Dissolution by C.J. Sansom. The book takes place in Tudor England and follows a hunchback lawyer as he’s sent by Lord Cromwell to investigate a murder at a country monastery during Henry VIII’s dissolution of papist religious houses. Naturally Jake and Jen get into relevant details like what constituted getting to third base with someone in 1537.
An important note on spoilers! Jake and Jen discuss who the killer is from 50:47-57:33. If you haven’t read the book but want to, you can safely listen to the rest of the episode and just avoid that spoiler-y portion.
